The Human Brain Project (HBP) Calls for Expression of Interest (CEoI) – 7 projects selected for EC funding for the third Specific Grant Agreement (SGA3)

7 projects were selected for EC funding from October 2020 to March 2023 (SGA3 phase). Actual funding of these projects goes hand in hand with the successful signature of the SGA3 Grant Agreement by the Commission, which is currently ongoing.

The new partners will be integrated into the HBP Consortium.
